This end credit scene is a teaser for the upcoming Captain Marvel movie next year in March, just a month before Avengers 4. In addition to being a superhero movie, Captain Marvel borrows heavily from the science-fiction subgenre of the space opera.
Kamala Khan was created in 2013, and made her first comic book appearance in Captain Marvel #14.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has spoken on whether fan-favourite Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan) will get to appear in the MCU following the events of Avengers: Infinity War and the now untitled Avengers 4. It would certainly be easy enough to drop a Netflix series set in New Jersey, and keep her shape-shifting powers to a minimum. To celebrate, Marvel Studios has dropped the prices on many of its superhero movies to $10 on digital platforms, including Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu.
It also beat the £51.9 million taken in 2012 by Marvel Avengers Assemble to become the most successful Marvel movie ever in the UK. But there's one more person inspired by Carol Danvers who could get a big-screen debut of her own: Kamala Khan.
The superhero franchise also introduced Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch, in the second "Avengers" installment.
The Ms. Marvel he's speaking of is the now fan-favorite Kamala Khan.
While it's unclear what "definitely, sort of in the works" means, this kind of statement coming from someone like Feige, who has shaped the MCU, is a big deal.
That's not even taking into account the several TV shows that Marvel is juggling.
2019 will also see the release of Captain Marvel and a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming and both films are expected to make close to $1 billion worldwide, according to a Forbes report.
What makes Captain Marvel's potential to shake up the MCU interesting would be the fact the film is set in the 1990's. "He was like, 'Yeah, that would be amazing!' but he didn't really commit to it, but he thought it would be a great idea".
